Robert Pattinson and Elizabeth Debicki Confirmed for Christopher Nolan’s 2020 Action Movie
The two actors join John David Washington in Warner Bros.’ upcoming Nolan tentpole.
Christopher Nolan is rounding out the cast of next feature and bringing on Robert Pattinson and Elizabeth Debicki to star opposite the already-announced John David Washington. Variety confirmed the new casting, which arrived just a day after the “BlacKkKlansman” favorite became the first actor to join the project.
Pattinson has built a career out of collaborating with some of the biggest auteur filmmakers around the world, and Nolan certainly fits the bill. The actor has mostly worked on independent films over the last decade, most recently teaming up with Claire Denis for “High Life” (opening in theaters next month), David Michod for “The King,” and Robert Eggers for “The Lighthouse.” Pattinson’s last studio film was in 2012 with “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.”
As for Debicki, the Australian actress is coming off a breakthrough year after earning the best reviews of her career for “Widows.” Many film critics championed Debicki’s “Widows” performance in the awards race. The actress also delivered strong work last year in “The Tale.” Debicki is no stranger to big budget studio tent poles, having starred in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” and “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.”
Warner Bros. will release the untitled new Christopher Nolan movie in theaters nationwide July 17, 2020.
